Search for potential housing, employment and other commercial use land
Residents, landowners, agents and parish councils have until 30 May 2013 to put forward any land or buildings in Cotswold District that they believe have the potential to meet future housing, employment, retail or other commercial need.
This 'call for potential sites' is part of a process being undertaken by the District Council to prepare for the replacement of its Local Plan. The new plan – which has a target date of 2015 - will determine how and where the District’s future development needs will be met until the year 2031. The council wants to identify as many potential sites as possible and will be assessing all submissions they receive.
Chris Vickery, Forward Planning Manager at CDC, said:
“The assessment of potential sites will form an important source of evidence for our Local Plan. However, I must make it clear that – at this stage - this won’t necessarily determine whether a site would finally be allocated for development, nor will the information be used as a material consideration when deciding planning applications.”
Anyone wishing to put forward potential sites should submit a brief description, together with ownership and contact details, and a map (preferably 1:1250 scale) with the site clearly marked on it, to:
Forward Planning Team,
Cotswold District Council,
Suggestions can also be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline for submissions is Thursday 30 May 2013.
